My name is Taylor Bamberger and I am running for SGA Senator. I am a freshman and my major is pre-mass communications and art & design. I am so excited to have the chance to run for this position! As a freshman it is hard to find ways to get involved, so I looked for every opportunity. I am currently on the Homecoming Committee, Tower C Building Counsel through URG, and an Orientation Leader for the incoming freshman next year with New Student Programs. I want to use my pride for this school to connect with the student organizations on campus and find new and creative ways to let their voices be heard! I thoroughly enjoy helping others and what better way to do that than through one of the largest organizations on campus. I am also supporting the OHANA ticket and all that they stand for.

Hey TU! My name is Rose-Romaine Bikoy and I am running for senator.

THE ROAR MOVEMENT: We’re bringing the roar back to you! I am taking a stand for the betterment of the SGA and Towson University. My name is Mary Crowe and I am running for SGA Senator. I am very passionate about ensuring that every student has a voice at this university, and that their voice is heard. I believe even the smallest student groups deserve proper representation and everyone should benefit from the work of the SGA.

Hello fellow Tigers, my name is Treyvond Davis. I am a Junior Art and Design major, EMF minor. I am running to be an SGA Senator for 2015-2016. Since my freshman year, I have always been involved with multiple organizations. I was part of CSA, worked for the Towerlight, and as an RA. I am currently President of my chapter for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., Public Relations Chair for BSU, working as a Multimedia Designer for Campus Rec, and as an Orientation Team Leader for NSP. With my diverse background of involvement, that is what I bring to the table. As a Senator, I plan to represent all of the organizations I have been involved in, and bringing their needs to the forefront. My goal is to shape Towson through leadership and innovation, and the way to do that, is through setting the standard for those around me.
I am an advocator for significant change amongst diverse organizations within our student body. If elected, I am committed in supporting all student organizations, equality for minority groups, and religious based associations. These organizations represent an undervalued diverse portion of our student body and assist in bridging the gap between the students and neighboring communities. I hope to gain your support in this upcoming election and promise to always remain the voice of the people.
Hey Tigers! My name is Xiomara Gonzalez and I am an Elementary Education major. Having prior experience on an SGA board from high school, I have a sense of what is asked of me as a perspective senator. I am willing to put in the work and time to ensure all students voices are heard and will promote unity among all student-lead organizations. Being a Resident Assistant on campus and holding the Recruitment and Retention position for Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. has allowed me to acquire the skills needed to be successful in the senator position. I plan on having more modes of social media where students can voice their opinions on change they want on campus. In addition, more opportunities for students to get involved on campus through fun and interactive events.
